Alberta NDP tweets accuse Wildrose of adopting policies from Trump playbook

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

While the Wildrose Party was busy releasing their findings on equalization fairness and gearing up for their annual AGM, the NDP were playing a little game that I like to call “everyone that I don't like is Donald Trump.”

In tweets released from the Alberta NDP account, they claim the Wildrose Party are adopting from the “Trump” playbook. Except the policies they highlight aren’t even closely related to Donald Trump’s, or the Wildrose Party’s for that matter.

They suggest that the WRP policy covers everything from forcing teachers to out LGBT kids, to increasing GHG emissions. One need only take a look at the actual policy, on page numbers that the NDP highlight, to see that this is totally false.

If anything, the NDP would be better for checking out Donald Trump’s economic policies, like reducing taxes on everyone, including corporations, in order to bring investments and a larger tax base back to the province.

Besides, the NDP are in no position to criticize another party’s AGM. At their own, the Leap Manifesto which proposed a radical shift to the left along with knee-capping the oil and gas industry, was debated.

The NDP are attacking the Wildrose Party at every turn, signalling that they’re in full campaign mode almost three years before the next election.

I can’t help but think the NDP know they’re out come next election and at this rate, I’d be surprised if even Rachel Notley manages to hang on to her seat.

Thanks Liza. I get it about emails but I was just wondering if there was a plan to coordinate like a whole flood at one time to certain addresses or something like that. I mean for everybody who can’t go to a rally. I see very little publicity in the media about this. Who’s involved and who’s behind it?

The NDP suck and Notley knows that’s how most people in Alberta feel. People are so ready for Wildrose. They need to stay in the limelight as much as possible until they are elected. Rachael going down.
Elton forgive me for stating the obvious, but it is always a good idea to send emails to your politicians and all contact info is a google away.
Also for all who can’t go, make sure to tell someone who may be able to go but may not know about the petition and rallies Nov. 5.
I live in BC, and can’t go, so I got in touch with people I know in Alberta to make sure they were aware of it, so they could go if they were able to.
Its important to all of us.

So what’s wrong with the Wild Rose taking a page out of the playbook from Donald Trump… "
Let’s make Alberta great again or separate"

The only good I can possibly see from this NDP nightmare is that come the next election they are relegated to the history bin with the Alberta liberal party never to be heard from again. Was wondering if Sheila or Holly could possibly give us a run down on what exactly is all taking place on Nov 5. Perhaps my fellow rebel readers can help me out. If unable to attend any rallies or whatever, what else can be done? Can we flood the gov with emails or something and if so whose and what are their addresses?

Crossing my fingers that the entire ndp caucus kills themselves to teach us a lesson. If your gonna dream, dream big!

This is what happens when people vote out of revenge. Its like cheating on your spouse to get back and not realizing the consequences.

You have a provincial government that is belittling the (likely, or at least plausible) next POTUS. The province’s main trade is with USA. Trump wants to renegotiate NAFTA. Notley will be sending representatives to those negotiations. Her insults towards Trump will just harm Albertans trying to seek economic growth and a decent trade deal. Absolute foolishness.

You are falling into the progressive play book by reacting to these accusations. Better to stay the course with policy and facts than responding to falsehoods.

Divisive, regressive, liars, thieves and just pure evil, I wake up every still not believing we live in an ndp province. Can’t stand that smug look and the constant lies nutley and her cabinet spew all the time. 2 1/2 more years is way too long, way too long to get rid of these garbage parasites.
